Massive Hordes Converge in Anaheim – NAMM 2018
Point in the direction of any person who doesn’t enjoy music. That would be a very difficult task to take on at NAMM's 2018 convention in Anaheim where thousands amongst thousands of music enthusiasts, vendors, distributors, and creators have taken refuge.
This year the convention center’s exhibit space has increased by 200,000 square-feet thanks to the addition of a new North Wing - meaning there is more to see. While the new addition has supposedly widened the aisles in all halls, avoiding head-on collisions with other bodies was still very probable experience.
The increased exhibitor space has allowed for a better presentation of products that include larger display areas. This alone has earned positive reviews. With all the good this year definitely out shadowing the negative, the only true complain were the cues to get into the show - at the expense of safety.
Many notable events took place during the first day of the NAMM show including the opening ceremony featuring Anaheim Union High School Districts very own Savanna Rebel Marching Band. That’s a biggie, especially considering the Noisy Cavern has its roots spread throughout Anaheim.
Check out some of the photos below to get a glimpse of Thursday at NAMM.
